I have been inspired by the autumn colours this year, and non more so than in a lost leafy walk in Killingworth, a local village. I always think of my childhood, playing cops & robbers, spys, or Cowboys and Indians amongst the trees in the top field or the valley when I go scouting for photographs like this one. And I always feel a bit uneasy for some reason.

However I digress, there I found this snail inside a hollow in a tree bough surrounded by autumn leaves so I set up the tripod the camera and the flash to provide a little internal light and took a few shots, just to invade the snail’s privacy.
